Stated 'First Printing' copy of author's first book. The quintessential Vietman era novel of war. Bound in original publisher tan and green cloth/paper. Soldier helmet device embossed in blind on front board. Tape ghosts to front and rear board as well as endpapers (the dust jacket was originally taped down after being placed in a mylar). Hence, the book is somewhat scathed, but the dust jacket is amazingly preserved. Original price of $5.95 intact on front flap. Great shelf appearance.
